The Syracuse Orange hope to keep the ball rolling after a very impressive 6-0 start to the year. The Syracuse Orange are averaging 73 points on 43.3 percent shooting and allowing 63.5 points on 36.9 percent shooting. Michael Gbinije is averaging 19.7 points and 4.2 assists while Trevor Cooney is averaging 15 points and 2.8 rebounds. Malachi Richardson is dishing 1.8 assists and Tyler Roberson is grabbing 9.5 rebounds. The Syracuse Orange are shooting 41.1 percent from beyond the arc and 70.4 percent from the free throw line. Syracuse is allowing just 28.6 percent shooting from deep but is averaging 15 turnovers per game. The Syracuse Orange have won 12 of their last 16 home games.
The Badgers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 14-4 ATS in their last 18 vs. Atlantic Coast. The Orange are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Big Ten.
Wisconsin is just not the same team from last season and will continue to struggle this early in the season. Syracuse is flat out rolling defensively and getting big tie play on the offensive end. At home? I see the Orange covering this number easily.
